Boston Manor in Brentford, West London will be celebrating it 400th aniversary in 2023.
A lot of obvious new brickwork repairs needed to be blended in using sympathetic ageing techniques. Dyebrick brick tining products do not alter the physical properties of the bricks, so were ideal for the Grade I Listed building.
Camilla, the Queen Consort visited Boston Manor today to see first hand the progress of this newly renovated Grade I Listed Jacobean house. Her Majesty viewed some of the refurbished rooms and met with architects, craftspeople, apprentices and volunteers who played an integral role in restoring the house to its former glory.

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation reconstructed Richard Charlton’s 18th-century coffeehouse—which, is the only authentic 18th-century coffeehouse in the United States. the grand opening is on Friday, November 20, 4:00 p.m.
Dyebrick products were used on the cosmetic renovation to the foundation walls.
Brick mason Ray Canetti stained the bricks sympathetically to create an authetic and natural recreation of how the Coffeehouse would have looked when first built.
Dyebrick is specified for use in conservation projects, as the physical properties of the masonry are not altered. For more information about the Coffee House renovation click here.
